Yellowstone’s largest and most impressive backcountry lake, Shoshone Lake, requires a significant haul on foot or kayak to reach—except by this quick, sneaky route. Head south along DeLacy Creek, passing open meadows that make wonderful habitat for moose and sandhill cranes, to Shoshone’s northern shores. Bask by the rocky beaches, explore farther down the lakeshore, or brave a dip in the frosty waters.
